  2. 2. History It all started with Carl G. Jung in 1920’s, when he introduced the Theory of Psychological Types. He founded Core distinctive types of Personalities. This was a huge step in being able to Discover & Understand more about Individuals. This theory was later adopted by Isabel Briggs Myers in the 1940’s along with her Mother Katherine Briggs. They further refined the findings of Jung and Introduced MBTI, which used 8 Psychological traits Leading to 16 Individual Personalities. The MBTI was created in order to understand people in a much easier un-conventional way.
